Predictions hang in the air but the odds seem to favor Kalisto over Ryback after his previous success in defending his title against Goliath.

Though a fresh match, Corbin is the underdog in this match with his evident lack of experience. Expect for a thrashing of Corbin. Odds are in favor of Ziggler tonight.

The two new tag teams, Enzo and Cass and The Vaudevillains will create a new tag team record at the end of the night. Enzo and Cass have bewitched the crowd but would that be enough to win the title, too?

Cesaro seems to be the crowd favorite right now but with The Miz holding the title, Cesaro might just need more than just the crowd’s support to win this one. As for Roman Reigns, AJ Styles will have help from Anderson and Gallows. But with Reigns’ gold still relatively fresh in his waist, it seems he’ll fight tooth and nail to prevent his reign ending.

WWE Payback 2016 is set to air 8PM ET on Pay-per-View and on the WWE network. If you haven’t subscribed yet to WWE, sign up today and get a free month of viewing. You can also watch WWE Payback 2016 live at the All State Arena in Rosemont Illinois.
